Getting to know you – Kar Yin Chan (Vic)
Kar Yin Chan joined LMA as a Licensee because, in his 30 years of corporate life, he had never come across a people development process that actually works, delivering measurable and lasting results and habits, until LMA. “Working with LMA aligns with my passion for continuous improvement – ‘how can we do this better?’. I am now in the position to assist other people and organisations improve their personal and business results and this is extremely satisfying”, he says.
Growing up in Penang, Kar Yin spent 3 years achieving a Bachelor of Economics in Melbourne, before returning to commence his career in Malaysia for 6 years. Together with his wife, Lai Fong, he emigrated to Australia in 1990.
Kar Yin’s background includes 30 years of corporate experience in operational and financial services, both domestically and abroad with international corporations. He has a proven record of success leading business groups in accelerating growth and expansion into competitive markets.
Kar Yin spends his home life surrounded by women – 3 teenage daughter and his wife keep him on his toes! He enjoys good food and playing squash in a battle to burn off the effects of the good food, along with spending time with family outdoors – camping and travelling.
One of the highlights of his time with LMA has been seeing a participant transform into a very positive and motivated leader, without the stress and negativity from trying to balance the significant volume of work and work related issues with her personal life. In her own words, “Fantastic. This course has given me self-awareness of certain issues at work and personal life as well.”
Kar Yin places great value in LMA’s Total Person concept, where we help participants focus on all areas of their life. “These days, many people tend to make personal and family sacrifices in order to cope with work, yet, are not very successful with getting the best work results – expected to do more with less. I take great pride in seeing my participants transform, becoming more productive and at the same time, very much happier,” he said.
